Mount windows share without the RECYCLER and System Volume Information dirs


I'm using an entry such as this one

//192.168.x.y/FTP /home/ftp/desenv smbfs username=xpto,password=xpto,uid=virtual,gid=virtual 0 0
in fstab to mount a remote windows share.
All works well but I get this

[root@ftp-desenv desenv]# ls
ftp  RECYCLER  System Volume Information
instead of just the meant ftp dir.

Can anybody tell me how to supress (if possible) that RECYCLER and System Volume Information dirs?

Thanks in advance.

Is the FTP Share (//192.168.x.y/FTP) the root of the drive i.e. is it really the d:\ on the Windows box or is it d:\ftp\ ? (or whatever drive letter)

Those folders are usually in the root of the drive.

That's the reason. Was kind of obvious now that you said that, but it hadn't crossed my mind since it wasn't me creating the shares.

Thank you for your answer.
